Carbon dosing and tank transfer

Hi guys, can't find any info anywhere online about this so thought I might ask here. We're about to upgrade our 55g predator reef tank to a 130g system. All live rock will be transferred and some extra dry added. I'm currently carbon dosing with vodka but haven't hit the maintenance dose point, still increasing by 0.5ml per week. My question is whether once everything is transferred do I just continue to dose as I am now, or do I start again from scratch? Thanks!

Continue with current. Dose and monitor levels. With the bigger tank and filtration you may find you don’t need to dose as much, or you may need to up the dose as fish grow. Bottom line is test a couple time a week until you find your new tanks needs.

Brilliant, Thank You! That was my initial thought to just carry on but started second guessing myself!

I think that sounds like a good plan, too.
